4 miles in 4 hours!

When I read the headline, I confess; I was stunned beyond words. Seriously. It took me several minutes to digest this story.

Three robbers with stolen goods, fled for over four miles through bushes... the officers followed the thieves through the bushes.

I didn't think any police duncey would run 40 yards/metres but for 4 miles?! Are we seeing the dawn of a new era?

Something still doesn't add up though. A four hour long chase covering 4 miles... a mile an hour? Seems that the speed of movement didn't really pick up, despite the 'chase'.
